Recurrent hemarthrosis results in synovitis and destructive arthropathy in hemophilic patients. Prophylactic replacement, physical therapy, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors, corticoster...
Repeated hemarthroses in patients with hemophilia may lead to hemophilic arthropathy with marked inflammation and synovial hypertrophy. Power Doppler ultrasonography is a useful tool in he...
Expecting using bipolar RF at six points, in spite of potentially consuming more intraoperative time, to be more effective and long lasting in the management of pain resultant from chronic...
Rotator cuff arthropathy is a cause of shoulder arthritis which is a common condition seen both in primary and secondary care. It is a painful condition, with significant disability. Spe...
Randomized clinical trial to assess the efficacy of a treatment protocol applied fascial therapy in patients with hemophilic arthropathy ankle, oriented to know and describe the observed d...
Charcot arthropathy, also known as Neuropathic arthropathy (NA), is an unusual chronic degenerative disease. To date, there exists a paucity of research on NA caused by syringomyelia.
Arthropathy is the most common and often the earliest clinical manifestation of hereditary hemochromatosis (HH). It is difficult to treat and there is a high risk for early endoprosthetic joint replac...
Dislocation arthropathy describes the development of progressive degenerative changes of the glenohumeral joint in the setting of instability. Although the specific etiology remains unclear, the traum...
Hemophilic arthropathy (HA) is a crucial morbidity and a major cause of joint pain and disability in patients with hemophilia A. Surgical methods, such as total joint arthroplasty, are of vital import...
Prolotherapy is an injection-based complementary treatment for various musculoskeletal diseases. The aim of this study was to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of ultrasound-guided prolotherapy in the...
Chronic progressive degeneration of the stress-bearing portion of a joint, with bizarre hypertrophic changes at the periphery. It is probably a complication of a variety of neurologic disorders, particularly TABES DORSALIS, involving loss of sensation, which leads to relaxation of supporting structures and chronic instability of the joint.

Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.
Parenchymatous NEUROSYPHILIS marked by slowly progressive degeneration of the posterior columns, posterior roots, and ganglia of the spinal cord. The condition tends to present 15 to 20 years after the initial infection and is characterized by lightening-like pains in the lower extremities, URINARY INCONTINENCE; ATAXIA; severely impaired position and vibratory sense, abnormal gait (see GAIT DISORDERS, NEUROLOGIC), OPTIC ATROPHY; Argyll-Robertson pupils, hypotonia, hyperreflexia, and trophic joint degeneration (Charcot's Joint; see ARTHROPATHY, NEUROGENIC).
